SOMEWHERE, A KILLER RABBIT LICKS ITS CHOPS:

Stumbling out the gate: Barack Obama flubs his first big test (Michael Goodwin, 2/08/09, NY Daily News)

It's not easy to waste a mandate and a honeymoon at the same time, but President Obama seems determined to try. You know he's off to a lousy start when his most favorable reviews came after he said, "I screwed up."

Did he ever, and not just once. If he keeps going this way, America will be saying, "We screwed up."

He's our President, it's a horribly dangerous time at home and abroad and we desperately need him to succeed. But he can't be successful unless he builds a broad swath of public trust in his leadership. So far, he's going backward.

It's very early, but it's worrisome that Obama has stumbled almost since he took the oath. His inauguration speech was uninspired and next to nothing has gone right for him. Already he looks like he needs a vacation.


It's an important step down the road of racial reconciliation for a black man to show he can be as awful a president as Jimmy Carter....
